Default Battlestar Galactica Online Beta

I had a chance to play the BSG online beta last night and unfortunately while I had high hopes for this game, those hopes crashed and burned

Starting out with spaceborne combat, I could only watch in horror as Tricia Helfer's computer generated image guided me through... pressing buttons and then watching as my cylon raider fired with all the grace of a staggering drunk. Worse yet the graphics are so outdated I'm surprised the designers bothered to include them at all.

When I saw the trailer I thought great, a nice bit of space fighter combat and some good first-person shooter elements, but now I'm just glad I can save my money when the actual game is released. Anyone who is a fan of the series is going to be dissapointed by this game. When you consider this comes on the back of another exceptionally poor offering and oh the Xbox game that was so hard a lot of people complained they couldn't get past the first mission, what is it going to take to give us a good BSG game?

If any of the designers should by any chance be reading this, then the following can be considered the damming summary on your game. It was so poor that I went back to playing the original Crimson Skies game, a game that is eleven years old. Yet it was still far superior to your reprehensible offerings.
